CLARK AFB- A group of Clark
Air Force Base officers and airmen on duty in Korea have joined with
other men to adopt 60 Korean orphans.
The children were orphaned during the evacuation
of families in the current Korean fighting. They are living in an
orphanage partly supported by the South Korean government, but the
60 won a day (10 cents in American exchange) allotted the group is
far from enough to pay all the bills and utilities and feed and clothe
the children who took very little with them. Toys were forgotten and
extra clothes were lost along the way.
THE GROUP of Clark AFB men is headed by Capt.
Charles A. Workman who with the others of his group is looking for
a location to build a new home.
Capt. Floyd Harvey of the Communications Sq.,
is aiding the Korean group by acting as representative on Clark AFB.
He is collecting clothing and cash donations to aid the group and,
at present, is trying to arrange for transportation of the goods to
Several Clark airmen have written home and asked
their families to send gifts of their clothes and those of neighbors
to the children.
